Need help with '86 560SEL

I am Jillian and I just bought a 1986 560SEL. The car still had the original first aid kit, but no owner's manual! There are several switches and buttons that I have no idea how to use or what they are used for. Can someone help please?

Post in the w126 forum. Get a manual on eBay. What buttons are you having trouble with?

First of all, excellent choice of motorcar.
Your local MBZ dealer should still be able to supply you with a reprint of the O.E. manual.
If not run a web search for Mercedes manuals and you will certainly find something.

What and where are the buttons in question.
I used to have an 87' 420 SEL..
